NE163: An Exclusive Mix By… Lakker

October 15, 2014 Needle Exchange

Words + Mix LAKKER

For this mix, we wanted a flow between beat-based and beat-less tracks, although the beats pretty much take over as the mix progresses! It seems natural for the flow. Also we wanted the beat tracks to be “dance music”, but not necessarily the kind of thing you often hear in clubs. We’ve never heard Senate Focus out for example, but would love to.

It’s basically the kind of set we’d like to hear in clubs—eclectic, but with flow and balance. That’s the idea anyway!
